Sleepy in St. Louis, Part 1
Four days earlier, the Dead played a much-lauded show in Madison, WI, and perhaps the boys (and girl) needed a couple more days rest from that beast (the 10/27 show notwithstanding). It certainly sounds like it on this night. As I mentioned in the review of the following night at the Kiel, this show shouldn't be entirely overlooked, despite it playing second fiddle compared to sister shows that were played during this period. For 1973 standards--and those standards are way high, folks--the first set is positively underwhelming. The “Truckin'” in the second set features an interesting jazz infused outro, if only because of the McCoy Tyner-esque inspired chordal structures laid down by Bobby beneath Keith's jangling ivories. The “Other One” offers little reward considering the time it allots, but again Bobby and Keith are the ones that shine on this number (this in and of itself, is rather telling). That said, there is a true nugget that boys pulled out of their hats that night: Eyes Of The World. It's truly a shining star out of an otherwise very overcast sky. It's as if out of nowhere the boys get their thing together and decided to play. And play they do! Everything down to the last note of the minor arpeggio jam is executed with profound precision and inspiration. It's truly one of the best Eyes of the year (or ever), and I suspect it would be highly praised if it were not for the fact that it was played in a show that reeks of mediocrity, and one that many people seemingly overlook altogether. This rendition is 1973 textbook bliss at is best, and should be transcribed to sheet music for the ages to marvel at and relish in.
If one is looking for an all around great show for this month in 1973, look to 10/19 and 10/25. Of course, things would only get better next month with monsters like 11/10, 11/11, 11/14, 11/17 & 11/30, but let's not get ahead of ourselves here....

First of all, when the NYT is commenting on something they know very little about, it's best to not listen. Secondly, anyone who was lucky enough to have been around in those early days wouldn't be so idiotic to make any statements about the best this or that. When there's discussion about the best this or that it indicates an "in the darker" is making said statements and should be completely ignored. Get my point? Thanks for letting me share.................

This is definetly the best quality show i've been able to acually download from archive for my ipod, so I listen to it all the time. The Eyes is the best i've ever heard. The Brokedown makes me cry. I really think this whole show is one of the best live vocal performances by jerry ever.

This show has some very tasty treats and plenty of off the rail moments.
Any show that has BIODTL as the second song you know is gonna be special. The rest of the set is played with an added sharpness and spunk. Keith and Jerry are real in sync on this one.
A first set Jerry trifecta? Nope missing El Paso, no why would some one drop that one? The Eyes is what really propels this set, and show, to greatness. The Row Jimmy is good but then possibly one of the best Eyes of the World ever?
It is a searing, tight, fluid version and Jerry continues to push this one into the stratosphere. His playing is simply off the hook and Keith is there every step of the way and yes of coarse so is Mr. Phil Lesh, who drops a huge bomb when they arrive at China Doll.
They rage out with Around to end the set.
Promised Land is missing on this source but the Bertha> GSET takes up right where the first set ended.
A rare Loser is satisfying but not over the top. Big River picks up the mayhem and then a very sweet and poetic Brokedown.
What happens over the next 25 minutes is utter greatness. You get a full throttle text book perfect reading of Truckin' that has a tremendous peak, with everyone completely right there at the exact right moment. Pure brilliance this dissolve into a spacey jam that is reminiscent of a year earlier into a short drums in a complete onslaught of the Other One that once more heads for the outer reaches of the solar system before coming back to the final verse.
Simply stunning this piece is.
Wharf Rat is good but not anything outrageous.
Sugar Mag is text book and strong and Casey Jones delivers the good big time.
I mean honestly this was the first night of a two show run so they had to step on the brakes alittle?

Eyes of the World
Wow. Crystal quality! Best Eyes I've ever heard live. Thank you to Seth!
Maybe all '73 Eyes are great, but the second half of this one jams! Jerry's chords on it harken to those in Here Comes Sunshine. Instrument separation is also real nice on this tape, it's really good to hear Bobby so clearly.
